As well as being a highly respected barrister who has appeared in some of the longest and most difficult criminal cases in recent history, Greg is a frequent contributor to news journals on human rights and legal issues.

Greg helped run Malcolm Turnbull’s argument for a republic in the dying days of the twentieth century.

Greg is also a colleague at my other chambers, Salamanca Chambers, in Salamanca Place in Hobart. Congratulations, Greg. You will do the new moniker proud.
